“The flexibility of the MBA program is what attracted me to Lenoir-Rhyne. I can go to school while working full-time and taking care of my daughter. The web streaming options have made it possible for me to manage coursework and family life.”
"With today's challenges of climate change, species extinction, a growing human population, and energy demands, the world requires leaders that can provide practical and scientifically based solutions. I feel the Master of Science in Sustainability Studies program has provided me with the leadership skills and knowledge to address these issues with confidence."
“It is never too late to get started earning a graduate degree. I always wanted to go to graduate school but time, money, and circumstances never seemed to work out until I was in my early sixties. Many students in the program work full-time and attend classes in person or through WebEx in the evenings. One of the people who graduated with me was 83 at the time.”
"The Master of Arts in Leadership program has inspired me to think more creatively about leadership, marketing, sales, and management skills used to promote my business."

“My favorite memory during my time at Lenoir-Rhyne’s Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary was serving LR and Bethlehem Lutheran Church as vicar. I was blessed in many ways while serving as vicar, and my curiosity of parish and campus ministry was fully affirmed during that time.”
